An excellent lip balm to use before applying lipstick will protect your mouth throughout the day.

We recommend: Burt "s Bees Lip Treatment Balm. Its regenerating and moisturizing action restores skin hydration from the first application! Using it constantly will keep your lips healthy.

3. Complete corrector for imperfections: the palette with shades suitable for dark circles and redness

A very common mistake to use the same concealer to cover different shades of the face. If you find different shades of redness in your face along with dark circles, you need to aim for a palette that offers a variety of shades to homogenize your skin. In the case of very marked dark circles, for example, you can use a beige pigment of a lighter shade than your base. In the case of redness, however, you can try using a green pigment to make the color of your complexion more uniform.

We recommend: the Maybelline New York concealer palette. The product includes 6 shades to correct all the different shades. And best of all, all colors are moisturizing and help soothe and protect delicate skin from external factors.

The choice of foundation is the main challenge when it comes to creating your own complete make-up kit. It's easy to mistake the skin tone or texture of the product, so it's always important to consider 3 factors when buying a foundation:

  • Coverage: if you feel the need to hide some skin marks or blemishes, you need to focus on a more consistent base with high coverage and you also need to be careful of the "lightness"of the pigment. A good foundation creates satisfying coverage without the need to add multiple layers of product. If, on the other hand, you are the type who prefers to add as little product to the skin as possible, a simple BB cream is already enough to even out the skin. and cover small flaws while offering a radiant effect.
  • Duration: it is also important to consider the duration of the product. Choose carefully the brand of foundation, always try to focus on the most reliable brands and also try to take a look at the reviews of the products, because often an inexpensive foundation may not satisfy you and you would risk having to spend even more to buy a better quality one. late.
  • Consistency: Finally, it is very important that you know your skin type before buying foundation. If you have rather oily skin, you need to focus on powder-based or compact products. If you prefer the liquid consistency, we suggest a mattifying foundation. If you feel dry or sensitive skin, a foundation in cream version with SPF is ideal for protecting your skin from the sun or the cold.

We advise you: to meet all your needs, we have chosen Collistar's foundation with lifting and anti-aging effect. In addition to the renowned quality of Collistar, this foundation is the right compromise between the three factors mentioned above.

  • Frequency of use: if you like to use eye shadows every day to highlight your eyes, focus on neutral, earthy colors that blend with the nuances of your skin. If, on the other hand, you prefer to create a more important make-up for parties, we advise you to be more daring and focus on sparkling and bright tones.
